Hooking big White Sturgeon and lots of Salmon in October is easier than taking candy from a baby
It’s not that October offers the best Sturgeon fishing, although it is very impressive. It’s the bonus of great Salmon fishing combined with good Sturgeon fishing that attracts a lot of our European guests. This is why October has the reputation it does. However productive and sometimes even EPIC Sturgeon fishing is present the entire open water season.
The abundance of Salmon
Ever dreamed of going Salmon Fishing in a place where it’s almost too easy? Well, this is par for the course in the Fraser River Valley in October. It boils down to an abundance of fish and knowing the timing. And fishing is all about timing, and having a experenced guide. So what makes October(and into November) so good? Chum and Coho Salmon is the answer. Lots of Chum Salmon and good numbers of Coho add to the excitement. Chum’s return to spawn every Fall starting around October 1st and run well into mid November. Coho are running from mid September to mid November. So October is smack in the prime time for both !!

The Chum salmon will keep pouring into the Fraser River Valley until late November. They are very prolific and aggressive biters. But what makes Chum salmon fishing so appealing is they trigger a feeding frenzy in the White Sturgeon population of the Fraser River. So it’s very easy to hook up with a ton of Salmon and then go play with some dinosaurs who will dish out some punishing battles!

Catch Salmon and giant White Sturgeon on the same day!
Chum’s fight tough. They are the brutes of the Pacific salmon kingdom. Combine that with endless hookups for several hours and you’ve got guys complaining of sore arms. But it’s a happy pain! We routinely see our guests hook into 20, 30 and 40 Chums each in a day on the river.
